FAQ of tandem skydiving


1. What are Paradive's heights for skydive?

First, it is important to know that the time of the free-fall will change according to the height of the jump. During your fall, you will reach a speed of up to 120 mph, which allows for approximately 60 seconds of free fall!

There are a few options of heights you can choose from:

-In the middle of the week the jump is from 11,000 feet- way above the clouds. (40 seconds of free-fall)

-On weekends you will jump from 12,000 feet- the world's most popular altitude for skydive! (50 seconds of free-fall)

And if you want, you can even go higher- to 14,000 feet 'Jet Tandem'; which is one of the world's highest altitudes for skydive! (70-80 seconds of free-fall).

*The height of the jump is a major part of the experience, but it is important to understand that the altitudes may change during the flight, due to weather changes and/or due to limitations of aerial activity.


2. What landscape will I see during the skydive?

Paradive's dropzone is located just half a mile from one of the most beautiful beaches in Israel- Habonim Bay, where the sea changes its colors from deep blue to amazing turquoise.

From above, after your instructor deploys your parachute, you'll learn that Israel is a lot smaller than you thought: you can see the coastline up to the Dan region, and sometimes even up to the snowy Mount Hermon. Across the beach, there are the green fields of the area, which connect to the Carmel forests.

Thanks to Habonim's coastline, Paradive is considered as one of the most beautiful skydiving sites in the world, And Just a quick look at our photo gallery will make you understand why you should come check this special place from the sky.

You will have 5-8 minutes of canopy flight and gliding!
